The project would have a total track length of 21.6 kilometres and allow the proponent to store and switch up to 850 railcars at any given time. Once constructed, the facility would also be operated and maintained by Canadian Northern Plains Rail Services Ltd. Alberta Midland Rail Terminal Ltd. would remain the owner of the facility.
